Core Tip

Core tip: Intrahepatic bile duct adenoma is a rare tumor arising from bile ductules in the liver. It is mostly seen as an incidental finding in adults but it is almost unheard of in children. Therefore it is one of the rarest tumors in children. Although it is a benign tumor, it has the potential to be malignant according to one study reported in adults. This case highlights the fact that it is the second case of this rare tumor occurring in the pediatric age group in the world. The progression into a large tumor in our case report necessitates the need for more information on this rare tumor.
